Zhang Hang Report on LENR Experiment Translated by MFMP (COP 1.23)

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project has posted about the recently published report of Chinese LENR researcher Zhang Hang which was published recently on the Chinese lenr.com.cn website here: http://www.lenr.com.cn/index.php?m=content&c=index&a=show&catid=7&id=763

Bob Higgins of the MFMP is working on an English translation of the article. Here’s the latest from the MFMP’s Facebook page:

    The COP higher than unity can be always multiplied in nested arrangement – after all, it’s just a matter of good thermal insulation and similar stuffs. If the pipe reactor gets cooled well, then even COP ~ 1.1 represents a practically viable success, once it gets reproducible.

    Maybe focusing only on achievement of nuclear reaction at low temperature with no importance at COP could increase understandment of the effect.

  • Sanjeev

    This one is much better than the previous experiments.
    Last night the heading said, its now reliably reproducible. How many people reproduced the result?

  • Sanjeev

    ITER is a good example of western science (and cern?). In west more money=more true.
    Anyway, its unfortunate that we have drawn political boundaries on science. Its same everywhere. There is no country specific science….

    • akupaku

      Thank you for your insights Sanjeev. My comment was merely an exercise in sarcasm. I have no problems believing in Russian, Chinese, Indian or any other country’s science if properly done.

      On the contrary, non Western scientists often seem to be more open minded and more prone to research unconventional ideas than their Western colleagues.

      In the words of the late fusion physicist Robert Bussard, ITER is interesting science but hardly a practical or rational approach to fusion energy and a hog that sucks money and resources from other more practical approaches. He was working on an inertial electrostatic confinement (IEC) fusor called Polywell. Another neglected but promising project is Focus Fusion.

      • Sanjeev

        Yes, I totally understood that your post is sarcastic, I only wanted to add to the sarcasm, so the mention of iter etc. Note that these countries (eastern as well as western) are funding and contributing to that project, so its not “western” strictly speaking.

  • Ged

    Hm, that is a good point. I think the Japanese transmutation experiments of yore may fall into that catagory, maybe?

    • Bob Greenyer

      That is what we are doing at the moment – yes we are looking for heat differential – but not as a priority.

  • literate-R

    Does anybody want to know the TRUE translated facts ? I am sitting in office with a chinese guy, he would be able to translate NOW. Anyone interested ?

  • Gerard McEk

    Thank you Bob Higgins for doing this very difficult work. I am sure that the basic hilarious translation of Google gives you pleasure though.

  • bachcole

    Given the fact that I already accept LENR as real (given the right very difficult to construct conditions), I have no problem whatsoever believing this report. And I am very happy to see it.

  • Private Citizen

    iframe link in article was not working for me (seems to be a quotation mark mismatch)

    If you have the same trouble try this:

    As for Chinese and Russian science, will believe it when widely replicated

  • Julio Ruben Vazquez Turnes

    Just waiting to hear skeptopathics to search for flaws as always. If they would put the same effort on investigation as they put in finding flaws we would already have LERN at commercial scale right now

    • Bob Greenyer

      Well – we have a lot of questions which we are seeking clarification on.

      • Sanjeev

        This is strange, it seems they did not follow any special method for preparation, still there is excess and its above error margins this time. Is it the powder or just a big error somewhere?

    • psi2u2

      I think there are skeptopaths and skeptics and that they aren’t the same thing.

      • Sanjeev

        Unfortunately, the common man thinks they are the same. A skeptopath is nothing more than a blind believer in an opposing theory. A skeptic always seeks, does not believe.
        Why believe when you can Know.

        I prefer the term Reviewer, which is still neutral.

    • Rossi Fan

      These guys in Russia and China are low level. Two days ago DARPA announced they are looking into LENR. For all we know they are all reacting to each other’s low level announcements. It’s a superpower no-win situation. If you officially state that you are working on it at a high level, then it turns out to be a hoax, you are a nation of fools. If you do not say anything and it turns out to be real, then you are a country of idiots who did not see it coming and had no top shelf scientists who found out about it sooner than later. The only way to win this game is to do what they are doing. Have someone low level claim they found it.

      • Rossi Fan

        The DARPA DE-FOA-0001598 announcement did not call it LENR. Renamed it to

        Modular Nuclear Energy System. Passed the duck test if you ask me.

        • Robert Dorr

          The DARPA announcement was regarding fission reactors not LENR. They did not rename LENR Modular Nuclear Energy System.

        • Sanjeev

          Lets not spread the rumors !

  • psi2u2

    Bob understands Chinese well enough to translate it?!! Go MFMP!

    • Bob Greenyer

      Bob Higgins uses Google translate and his knowledge of science, engineering and LENR to do the job correctly with patience.
